Of or pertaining to the tropics; characteristic of, or incident to, the tropics; being within the tropics; as, tropical climate; tropical latitudes; tropical heat; tropical diseases.
Being within the latitudinal zone bounded by the two tropics (23º 27' north and south latitude).
a general term for crisp lightweight suiting fabrics. They often use fine or high twist yarns for a porous construction . May be a variety of fibers and weaves . Primarily used for warm weather suits.
an area that has mostly warm to hot weather.
An area or climate that is frost-free and has temperatures high enough to support year-round plant growth if enough moisture is present.
a climate zone noted for precipitation patterns of rainy summers and dry winters
Low latitude (less than 20° latitude) areas characterized by high temperatures and high precipitation. At high elevations, however, tropical mountains may be both cold and relatively dry.
of weather or climate; hot and humid as in the tropics; "tropical weather"
Those parts of the world which lie within 23.25 degrees either side of the equator and bordered by lines of latitude called the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. The word "tropics" comes from the Ancient Greek tropos meaning "turn" because the apparent position of the Sun was observed to oscillate between the two tropics during the course of a year. Tropical is also used to describe any climate which tends to be hot and humid all year round.
Pertaining to the low latitudes of the world between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.
often between 20°N and 20°S, very hot and humid with temperatures always greater than 65°F and rain most of the year.
Referring to climatic conditions like those found in the region on the earth today between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn; it includes high temperature and humidity and abundant rainfall.
A classification of climate based on the K\"oppen System for regions where the coolest month is warmer than 65oF (18oC) (Bailey 1980).
Inhabiting the low latitudes characterized by a warm, seasonally stable climate.
An area that never gets cold and does not have different seasons. Tropical areas are found close to the equator, and on a world map the area between the Tropic of Capricorn and Tropic of Cancer is considered the tropics.
the region of the earth that surrounds the equator, from 23.5 degrees north to 23.5 degrees south.
geographically, the area between the Tropic of Cancer (23º 27' N) and the Tropic of Capricorn (23º 27' S), which includes tropical montane and alpine zones; climatically, the tropics are described as either the equatorial limits of freeze or, in temperate marine locations without freezing, the 65º F isotherm for the coldest month of the year; generally, tropical regions are characterized by high mean temperatures, small annual variation in temperature, and abundant rainfall throughout the year, although mountainous areas within the tropics are more variable.
warm and usually humid climates. These climates are closest to the equator.
Having to do with the warm regions of the Earth near the Equator
an place that has hot and humid air
The region of the earth located between the Tropic of Cancer, at 23.5 degrees North latitude, and the Tropic of Capricorn, at 23.5 degrees South latitude. It encompasses the equatorial region, an area of high temperatures and considerable precipitiation during part of the year.
regions of the earth lying between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn extending around the equator where the temperature and humidity are high.
Region in which the climate undergoes little seasonal change in either temperature or rainfall. Tropical regions of the earth lie primarily between 30 degrees north and south of the equator.
